Previous Slide won't work... NEW
by: Anonymous

I find the moving to a previous slide won't work.. the back button, back arrow, page up, etc.. will only move to the top of the existing slide, but not to a previous slide... is there a solution in fixing this.. I know if I right click with a mouse, I can choose a previous slide, but I tend to use an external wireless control that has a back and forward button.

Thanks,

Ken

Issue with Slide Movement NEW
by: Presentation Process Expert

I am assuming you are having multiple slides and the slides won't move when you are in Full Screen or Slideshow mode.

This may happen in 2 cases
Issue 1. if you have set up a Custom Slide Show with just the first slide.
Solution: Go to your slideshow tab > Custom Slideshow and check if you have any listed there and remove them.
You would set up Custom Slide Show if you wanted to exclude certain slides or reorder existing slides for a particular presentation. If you have multiple custom slide shows, you can select which one you want to run.
Sometimes, when playing with this option, presenters tend to select 1 slide and then leave the menu. This ends up causing this issue of slides not moving ahead as they are using the set up custom show.

Issue: 2. You transition (slide transition in animation tab) - the Advance Slide option is NOT set for On Mouse Click.
Solution: Go to Animation option and check if the Advance Slide on Mouse Click Option is ticked. If it is not ticked, check the option and Apply it to All slides. This will ensure that your slides move forward in slideshow option.

You would usually uncheck this option of Advance on Mouse Click, if you wanted to have a presentation navigated with Hyperlinks. It makes the ppt look more like a website rather than a presentation.
Hope this helps!
